For some unknown reason “Jawed Karim” was always been away from limelight. For those who doesn’t know “Jawed Karim”, I am going to give you a very little information about this young & talented man. He was the Co-Founder of popular video sharing site “YouTube” & he also designed many core components of  “PayPal”. Karim was born in Germany in 1979, later on he moved to USA with his family back in 1992. His father, Mr. Naimul Karim is a Bangladeshi researcher at 3M. His mother Christine Karim, is a German scientist and research associate professor of biochemistry at the University of Minnesota.

Now the question is what really made me to talk about Karim? Couple of minutes back I was checking my Yahoo mail account. As I logged out it took me back to the Yahoo home page where there was a news titled with The World’s Most Beautiful College Campuses. This report was originally from Forbes.com. As per Forbes report “Stanford University” ranked 5th among the world’s most beautiful college campuses. Ironically the photo that was published on forbes site was taken by “Jawed Karim”. Just underneath the photo you can see his name. I was not amazed but thrilled because I knew him as a student of computer science. I didn’t know he is a promising photographer as well. Bravo Karim.
